3D Pilates: Spinal Symmetry

May 2, 2020

Aline Pilates, Brooklyn, NY

.

Can you see your client’s spine as though with “X-ray vision” during Pilates exercises? For example, can you see and describe why some clients always twist to one side when they do the Roll UP or always sit with one hip higher while sitting on the Short Box on the Reformer? Do you know how to correct your client’s spinal asymmetries without creating poor alignment up or down the spinal chain? Has your experience with spinal workshops left you confused by bio-mechanical terms with little practical information when you are back teaching in the studio?

.

In this two-part course Marshall Hagins and Blossom Crawford will teach you how to see and improve spinal symmetry in three planes using novel cues within the Pilates environment. More course info here.

3D Pilates Instructors

 
 

Blossom Crawford

 
Blossom Leilani Crawford is the owner and director of Bridge Pilates in Brooklyn, New York. She is known for her playful and powerful teaching methods, which she developed during the seventeen years she worked with Pilates Elder Kathleen Stanford Grant. Blossom had the great fortune of being introduced to Pilates by Kathy Grant in 1993 during her first year as a dance student at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Blossom was immediately impressed by how Kathy’s exacting and intuitive approach to Pilates maintained and healed her body throughout her rigorous dance program. After three years of working with Kathy, Blossom became her Teaching Assistant at NYU, an honored position that she held for over a decade (1996-2007). With Kathy’s encouragement, Blossom pursued private study with Pilates Elder Romana Kryzanowska under whom she received her Pilates teaching certification in 1999 after six hundred hours of practice and observation. In January of 2006, Blossom opened Bridge Pilates to create a space where all styles of Pilates are present and honored in the spirit Kathy always taught her. Her in-depth knowledge and diverse background make her a sought-after teacher for both continuing education and prestigious conferences throughout the United States and around the world.
